Coming to an end
This week has been a year
Parting now- last final chance
Take some
Don't be shy--Just buy some
Night falls and another mask becomes so different from the one before
The city becomes a huge ring
with fires burning throughout the towns
Mom and dad don't know how untamed I've become
The city-a game I play
jumping from corner to corner
Loading up to become high
Landing in the middle
Dawn comes together
The stars all go up
So I must leave
Crawl back to my shell
Until the Nights air shows once again upon my breathe.

I am trying to see a unifying force, other than you, in this poem. What's the point...if there is one.

I see in this the scattered thoughts & happenings of a young person out and about on the town - partaking of the night life ...and hiding within herself..."behind a different mask".....Good work, & yes, very deep. That's why it may seem hard to follow...it's deliberately scattered because her experience was also scattered....Maybe? Oh, by the way, I sent you a lengthy E-mail....let me know you received it ok, I'm toying with a new MailLink I've never used before....want to make sure you got it before I leave town....Lots of love, Gen
